We’re loving this quick and easy Instant Pot Creamy Tomato Soup with Crispy Parmesan Chickpeas! Stove-top instructions also available below. Vegetarian + GF
So I totally make all my soups in my Instant Pot now. Like seriously, all of them. It’s glorious because I get slow simmered flavor in a fraction of the time, often with little to no effort on my part. If you’re in the market for one, let me be the annoying friend shouting “DOOOOO IT!!!!” from the rooftops.
Since I know most of you haven’t taken that leap yet, I’m including complete stove top instructions for ya. After all, that’s how I made this tomato soup pre-IP!
No matter which method you use, this soup is good! Creamy tomato soup has to be, hands-down, one of my favorite comfort foods of all time. I usually serve mine up with baked mozzarella balls, grilled cheese, or a cheesy quesadilla but lately I’ve been keeping things light with my crispy parmesan roasted chickpeas on top. LOVE IT SO!
Spinach and Tomato Grilled Cheese Pitas: dunk them in your favorite soup or face-plant into them all on their own for a quick and easy lunch that’s always a hit!
Let’s talk about pita bread!
Their usefulness goes way beyond typical pita chips and gyros. We’re huge fans of using them as a base for pizza (this spinach pesto flatbread rocks my world!) and for open faced sandwiches stacked mile-high with hummus, tomato, cucumber, and feta. Lately I’m more likely to have pita bread on hand than actual bread. I keep a few rounds in the freezer so I always have some on hand for an easy lunch or dinner or as a dipper for appetizers.
Bring on the spinach dip!
So when a grilled cheese craving strikes and there’s no bread to be found… pita bread to the rescue! I actually might start making them like this on purpose. Fluffy pita bread and melted cheese are a match made in heaven. Factor in the toasty, buttery grilled crust that happens when you take things to the skillet well… I’m hopelessly obsessed!
Since easy, cheesy, grilled cheese really needs no intro around here, let’s jump into the recipe and get our pita on with these spinach and tomato grilled cheese pitas!
